PONTIAC, Mich. -- The Oakland County Court House was all a buzz Thursday Oct. 15 as Al Pacino was in town to film the HBO movie titled “You Don’t Know Jack”.

One girl in the crowd watching said that she had the opportunity to meet Pacino and she asked him to repeat a line about a gun from the movie Scarface, at first he was hesitant but then he said the line for her. When he saw the crowd of fans gathering around he asked them if no one had to work, one man told him this was Michigan. He said that he really liked Michigan and hoped to film here again. Someone said there was no filming being done in Hollywood (I am guessing for this movie) just Michigan and New York. No photos of Pacino were allowed; his publicist had exclusive rights. The movie will air in early 2010. Some people thought they were seeing Dr. Kevorkian, it was actually Al Pacino he was made up so well he was a great double.

After business hours the crew went inside the court house to film. Later in the evening they headed down Woodward to a location near the closed Ducky’s Bar and across the street at the Sagano Motel. Woodward was closed from East Blvd. to St. Joe Hospital for the night time filming. I was lucky enough to have gotten a photo of the famous Volkswagen van that Dr. K used to drive being taken off of the hauler.

Additional scenes for the movie were filmed at the Clinton Diner in the Queens district of New York City. The movie also stars Susan Sarandon, John Goodman, Danny Huston, Brenda Vaccaro and Eric Lange.

"You Don't Know Jack" is expected to debut on HBO in the spring of 2010.
